Henry Bucks have an umbrella repair service. I haven't tried it. They send it to NSW somewhere. I have been meaning to see if they can repair a small rip in the canvas of my umbrella.

To be honest, if they are fully appraised of the facts, I would be surprised if you get a favourable response from HY (puttting aside their generally terrible customer service response for a moment).

Winds in Melbourne were up to 60km/h this morning. Much stronger in wind tunnels in the city.

I don't think it's reasonable to expect a #menswear umbrella to survive this. Any umbrella, really... All it takes is for it to be placed at slightly the wrong angle and you're done. Wind is incredibly powerful. Most people I saw forwent their umbrellas completely.

I have a Kent Wang one manufactured by the same factory and I could feel it starting to give this morning, so I gave up too.

I hope you are able to get it repaired. Please report back.

Pilling on a lambswool jumper I just bought is rife, I have a tool which i can shave the wool back but I am wondering is it due to the quality of the wool, the knitting of the jumper or is it due to the manufacturing of the yarn to being with?

Length of the fibre.

GF, I've got a pair of their wide-wale corduroy trousers in bottle green and they are very nice. I'd happily buy them again.

Actually its the left shoulder but that is another story. And my RM Moleskins are keeping the cold at bay.

JM Thanks for the POV. Now to secure my size.

I need some moleskins.

I had a pair, put them away for summer and now can't find them. Might have donated them by mistake.

Drives me mad.

Oh, don't get me started on socks.

I'm convinced of either a parallel universe or a perverse conspiracy coordinated by her indoors.
